A wonderful family getaway

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four spent a fantastic week at Summer Breeze. The house is very nice and comfortable. The kitchen is well appointed for cooking. The 3 bedrooms are nicely decorated and the beds are comfortable. The master has a wonderful slider to a deck so you can fall asleep to the stars over the water and wake up to an unobstructed view of the beach and water. Great location - beach is literally 10 steps away. The caretakers are very nice people - responsive and helpful. Couldn't ask for more and can't wait to return.

Amazing property on a fabulous island!

  • 5 of 5

The house is even better than advertised! The location was perfect. The owners and Paula and Ritchie were very responsive to questions and met us when we arrived. We ordered groceries through Paula and it worked out great. The kitchen was well stocked with everything needed to cook. The new beach chairs were put to good use. The house could use another new beach umbrella and the golf cart parking break needs fixing but overall the house and its amenities were just fantastic top to bottom. As for the island, if you want reservations at Over The Water or the NCIC Restaurant, do it as soon as you can. Or go to OTW for lunch - no reservation needed and not as crowded. Also Mangoes is great too and we never had to wait there. Lastly, we went fishing and sight seeing with Capt Ritchie - he got my kids fish on a crazy windy day, saw 8-10 manatees while sight seeing and had a very nice lunch at another island. Overall it was all awesome and can’t wait to go back.

Best spot on the island, perfect for a beach vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Summer Breeze is the ideal beach house - right on the water, beautiful sunset views, secluded island, big porches. Paula and Captain Richie were very friendly, they do a great job managing the property and made sure we had everything we needed. I would definitely recommend getting Paula to do a grocery service so you don’t have to lug groceries and your luggage to the island. The house has everything you need which is very convenient considering it’s on a remote island. There’s a hot tub, kayaks, beach toys, beach towels, chairs, umbrella, and membership at the club which gives you access to pools and tennis courts. The kitchen is well appointed and has those little items like salt, pepper, condiments, cooking oil and salad dressing. The house is very close to the state park side of the island which has trails and pristine beaches. I would definitely recommend this place!

Amazing family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We had the most amazing family vacation.. It was our first time to the island and definitely not our last. This property was perfect for our family and couldn't have asked for a better location. It was equipped with all of the amenities for adults and kids. This was so important given the remoteness getting to the island. Captain Richie and his wife, Paula, we so very helpful in helping us prepare for everything we needed. We even enjoyed a fantastic fishing excursion one day with Captain Richie!! We would LOVE to stay at this property again... thank you for an unforgettable experience!!

  • 5 of 5

Staying at Summer Breeze was AMAZING. We were very happy to walk into the house and feel so welcomed and at home. It was very accomodating for our little family of three. Their were pack n plays for our daughter to sleep in at night and nap during the day. The house has its own personal pathway straight to the beach which made it easy for us to move things down to the beach with the baby. The house has everything! Kayaks, umbrellas, beach chairs, a hot tub, etc. There's always something to do. It has a perfect front view of the beach and an adorable little pond. We had sweet family time just sitting out on the balcony watching the sunset each night and waking up to the sound of waves in the mornings. It had an amazing 3D TV with a great selection of movies to choose from. The kitchen was well equipped with utensils, spices, condiments, filtered water and so much more. We couldn't have asked for a better house to vacation at! We can't wait to make another trip again! Thank you!!
